If you have a good position in line with the current dealer, you may want to wait to make the switch until you receive the invitation to order.
There is a dealer "playbook" you can find on this site that was for MY 22 that explains the process. They were able to prioritize so many orders. Based on production numbers, I doubt they are all through those customers.

yes… reservations (earlier than yours) transferred from other dealerships can continually push you down.
I don't think so. Transferred orders are likely to end up at the bottom of a dealer's list but we don't have confirmation of this. It has been implied in videos made by @fordvideoguy. He would know better.
You never lose your date/time stamp for the reservation on ford.com… if you transfer that resv from one dealer to another that dealers rack/stack is adjusted based on your original date/time stamp. I’ve spoken to two dealers this week and they confirmed where I’d fall if I moved my 5/19 res to them…
Interesting. Of course, we all know how reliable information from dealers is.

The real questions to anyone considering moving to a new dealer is where are you on your dealer's list and when did you reserve. If it was really early, you might do OK with moving. If you are like @svcwhoda and at #9 with the current dealer, I'd stay put until I received my invitation, then order from the preferred dealer.
